Applications for these programs are due to Goucher Office of International Studies on October 23 for Winter 2015 and March 12 for Summer 2015 with a $100 administrative fee.

Students must apply to both OIS and the study abroad program by the posted deadlines. Late applications will be assessed a $50 late fee by OIS.

The Office of International Studies recognizes that Goucher-sponsored study abroad programs may not meet the individual academic, social, and cultural preferences or needs of all students. With this understanding, Goucher allows students to participate in short-term non-Goucher programs offered through many of our study abroad providers.

Other programs

Students wishing to participate in any other programs must submit a petition to the associate director of ois.   Please contact jennifer.white@goucher.edu for the petition, but only after attending Study Abroad 101. The program you choose must be through an institution accredited in the United States or an international institution recognized by the ministry of education in that country.   At minimum, programs must be at least three weeks in length and offer three units of academic credit.  This is a Goucher College policy governing transfer credit and no exceptions will be made.  All courses must be approved by Goucher faculty during the application process. 

Goucher will generally not approve programs that take place in countries for which a U.S. State Department travel warning or CDC travel health warning has been issued, with the exception of Israel. Students who elect to study in Israel are required to sign a special release and hold harmless agreement. 

In addition, students who have a compelling educational reason to travel to such countries may submit a request for an individual exemption from this policy to the director of OIS. 

Attend an advising session before applying, to ensure the chosen program is approved for Goucher study abroad credit, after attending a Study Abroad 101 session. 

International internships can be approved to satisfy the study abroad requirement.  Students must follow procedures with the CDO and receive approval from OIS after attending their Study Abroad 101 session. 

Students who have concerns about finances should contact an OIS advisor for a private appointment.

After attending Abroad 101 and Abroad 102 group advising sessions, please contact Carol Donhouser at cdonhaus@goucher.edu for applications or more information on these programs.
